      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q:heart: , J:heart:
      UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.10, SB folds, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.35) Q:club: , A:diamond: , J:club: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP1 bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.70, BB folds, MP1 calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.75) T:heart: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1.75) K:club: (2 players)
      MP1 bets $1.67, Hero folds.

      2 very unwanted cards here on turn and river. I folded the river, only thing that beats me is flush, but even if it is a bluff I'm only splitting a small pot. On the turn is it likely they may be holding AT, KQ, KJ?

      you should raise pf with QJs, because:
      - you´re ip, and can control the size of the pot
      - you´re pf aggressor and ip, so often you can c-bet on Ax/Kx boards and take pot down with Q high
      - you´re ip (which means you can basically do whatevr you want:P )

      I would raise flop to 1$, since it is drawy. I think you can b/f turn and then evaluate on the river if you want to bet again

      River fold is fine as you said, since at best cases you´re only splitting the pot.
